Morning Cup of Joe – Adjusting to Change


It has been said that the only thing that is constant is change. Meaning the only thing that you can definitely count on happening sooner or later is change. Since we know that we will inevitably encounter change, we may as well prepare for it. The best way to prepare for change is to mentally and physically be alert. By being alert I mean staying ready. Remember, you don’t have to get ready if you stay ready. Work on staying ready and alert at all times.

Change happens whether we are on board or not. The goal is to see and build on the “good” that always comes from any change experience. Granted the good doesn’t always present itself in the challenge but that’s when you have to work at discovering it. For some, this can be difficult. Difficult means you have to work a little harder; don’t be afraid to work hard.

When the winds of change eventually cross your path, embrace it and adjust with it. Think of yourself as a sailboat that’s reliant upon the wind currents to progress you forward. If your main sail is not up and connected to the firm mast, you will not move, will become very unstable and may eventually sink. If you stand firm like the mast and always keep your main sail up, then you can adjust with the changing winds. Learn to have your sail open in order to adjust with the changes going on in your life.

The changes we experience are always for the better; whether it seems that way or not. Don’t be afraid to move.
